Promoting projects and events across the state each April to prevent child abuse/neglect
Every April is Child Abuse Prevention Month
Child Abuse Prevention (CAP) Month is a time to observe and celebrate the importance of families and communities working together to prevent child abuse and neglect -- and to promote the social and emotional wellbeing of children and families.
PCAND, under the auspices of the ND Department of Human Services, encourages communities to apply for a CAP Month grant beginning in November of each year. Grants support a variety of child abuse and neglect prevention awareness activities.
You can can learn more about CAP Month activities on this page.
Communities across North Dakota are encouraged to apply for a 2016 Child Abuse Prevention Month grant.
PCAND always welcomes your ideas at info @ pcand.org. For more information about CAP Month, contact Sandy Tibke, Executive Director of PCAND, at sandrat @ pcand.org or 701.223.9052.
Celebrating CAP Month
You are invited to celebrate Child Abuse Prevention Month, whether you are a concerned community member or a CAP Month grantee. In 2015, we put together a resource guide, which includes posters, flyers, drawing contest rules, pinwheel coloring sheets, and suggested family activities.
